Basically, I'm wanting to stream locally stored media (.jpg, .tif, .mp3, .mp4, .avi and .m2ts files) from my PC to 3 different televisions in the home.
Playon is similar to Mezzmo in that they can both be used to stream locally stored media to DLNA/UPnP equipped devices like a PS3 or Xbox 360. Mezzmo is a little more geared towards the local storage while PlayOn appears to focus more on the online streaming services like Hulu, NetFlix, etc. If you've tried TVersity, PS3 Media Server, Twonky or anything like that, it's very similar.
I've been using the PS3 as a playback device, but the PS3's implementation for Cinavia DRM protection is making it difficult so I need to replace it with something like the Boxee, WD Live, Popcorn Hour, etc.
If I hadn't already spent hours setting up my libraries, playlists, metadata and artwork with Mezzmo, I would probably just use the network playback features on one of the devices. The DLNA process just streamlines the whole thing so smoothly when it's properly implented.
I'm just looking for someone to let me know how the DLNA server is accessed through the UI of the Boxee Box, WD Live Hub or similar device and whether the album art is preserved so that my six year old can easily browse her Barbie DVD collection with as little interference from us as possible.
